“Perfect Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2007

A Place in the Sun, is Self Catering, or Bed and Breakfast accomodation. Both units are very well equipped and have a large communal area. The property is located on the hill overlooking Russell, and the Bay between Russell and Pahia.

Our expectations were exceeded not only by the amazing view from the large garden, but also by the very personalised service we recievd from the owners Pip and Oliver.

It was the perfect place for us all to meet and share a Chrstmas and New Year that none of us will forget.
